Public health funerals

Executors of a will

We will not be able to make funeral arrangements where the deceased left a will and we can trace the executor.

In these circumstances, the executor will organise and pay for the funeral.

If the executor no longer wants to carry out their duties, they must:

  • make a formal renunciation of the will
  • declare that they wish to have no further involvement in the funeral arrangements

We will use the deceased's possessions to help offset the cost of the funeral.  If the executor has removed property or possessions from the deceased's home they need to make available to us.

You can contact our Cemeteries team for more information or to ask for a copy of this procedure.
